A Setters Storm

Another football season comes to the endzone. Basketball tips off with consecutive nights of hoops at home. Athletics unveils its brand new website and the opening of their online team shop with almost a thousand items. They’re not called Pace Setters for nothin’!

One season ends, the other begins. We’re not talking about the coming of winter. We’re talking about our Pace Setters football and basketball teams. Both the field and the court will be filled with blue and gold this week!

The football season will come to an end on Saturday, November 12, as the Setters take on the American International Yellow Jackets on the PLV Campus. Will the Setters prove they’ve got just as much bite as they do bark or will the Yellow Jackets put the stinger in our final game of the season? The game kicks off at noon and SAAC celebrates Senior Day, so come out and bid your senior Setters farewell. There will be a Barnes and Noble Mobile Store and Shoprite Fan Zone, featuring free hot dogs, chips, and sodas!

The men’s basketball teams shoots and scores for the first time this school year on Friday, November 11, against Nyack, and then goes right back to the court on Saturday, November 12 with another home game against Dominican. For women’s bball fans, your time will come next week when the men’s and women’s teams take on Le Moyne in back-to-back games on November 16.

But it’s not just the athletes doing work at Pace. The Athletics Department will unveil its new and fresh Pace Athletics website today with a new look, social media focus, and a “Fan Zone” section featuring promotions throughout the year, upcoming events, and game day information, hosted by PrestoSports. Keep refreshing folks!

In addition, Athletics announced the opening of the new Pace Athletics Online Team Store where fans can purchase Pace Setters swag at www.pacesettersteamshop.com. The new store features between 800 and 900 items with Pace Athletics logos for sale.
